Strain developmentDeveloped by Dr. T. Shiomi, National Institute of Radiological sciences in 1999. A neomycin selected cassette was transfered into D3 ES cels to replace the exon 3 of Ercc5 gene. C57BL/6Cr background.
Strain descriptionB6.129S2-Ercc5<tm1Shm>. Xeroderma pigmentosum group G (XPG) gene is a structure-specific DNA endonuclease which plays a role in nucleotide exision repair and transcription-coupled repair of oxidative DNA damage. Xeroderma pigmenrosum (XP) is a autosomal recessive disorder characterized by hypersensitivity to sunlight, abnomal pigmentation, and predisposition to skin cancers, and caused by defects in an early step of the nucleotide exicision repair pathway. Xpg2 deficient mutant mice exhibit severely postnatal growth failure and underwent premature death. This strain is useful as a animal model for Xeroderma Pigmentosum.
Colony maintenanceSibling Mating (Heterozygote x Wild-type)Homozygous mutant mice display severely postnatal growth failure and underwent premature death.
